Gilfoyle’s Full Bitcoin Presentation From HBO Silicon Valley TV Series
HBO’s Silicon Valley is consistently one of the most intelligent shows on television. In episode 7 of season 5, titled “Initial Coin Offering“, the main characters toil with the idea of launching their own cryptocurrency via an ICO
Bertram Gilfoyle, the anarchist systems engineer who has shown a passion for crypto, spends the episode trying to convince CEO Richard Hendricks that the startup should raise its $30 million Series B financing round from ICO instead of traditional VCs, thus creating PiedPiperCoin. He says,
“There are very few things that I will defend with true passion… medical marijuana, the biblical Satan as a metaphor for rebellion against tyranny, and motherf**kin god*mn cryptocurrency.”
This is the statement which precedes what might just be the most memorable and positive presentation about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies that we’ve ever seen on television as Richard cuts Gilfoyle off, and we’re left wondering what the majority of the slides say.
Journalists from Business Insider Australia have managed to convince the show’s producer Alec Berg to send the slides that get shown during the presentation of our beloved bearded Canadian. As it turns out, the text was inspired by the work of Henry Berg, an engineer and Bitcoin guru who just happens to be the brother of the show’s producer! Scroll through the slides below to have a look at that Gilfoyle’s Powerpoint Presentation!
